    Bradley, I hope you have the smarts and the intelligence to go with your bulging 6-packs. Otherwise just show us what you got and stop your shallow trash talk. For a boxing nobody, you are lucky you were sentenced, I mean, picked to do the impossible dream. Good luck anyway and “sweet dreams” !!

      I think you are the financial adviser who was sacked by Pacman before. You’re just sourgraping. Common it is better to hope good to both of them coz even if Pacquiao loses, he get millions and still no  single dime for you if Bradley won.
